It’s December, and that means not only is it hot as f*ck, but it’s release month at Momentum for four awesome pen-babes. Remember, if you start to spontaneously combust while reading: stop, drop and roll.

Let’s kick off with S E Gilchrist…

paying the forfeit

When a newly-forged alliance sees her older sister pledged to the man Leila has fallen in love with, she flees her tribe in the wastelands and seeks anonymity inside the Fortress.

Years later, she learns her sister has refused to honour the agreement. The forfeit – another mate or a cache of the prized yellow sapphires – must be paid or her remaining family will be banished.

For Leila, the role of second choice is not an option.

With the sapphires in her possession, Leila must decide – pay up now, or keep silent and take one long, hot night with the mate of her heart.

And then there’s CT GreenDream Lover

Cate Reynolds is lost in the middle of the Australian bush, all because of one fatally attractive man.

Reece Johnson’s not just a threat to her libido, but her peaceful paranormal existence. In order to avoid revealing her darkest secret, Cate needs to stay as far away from Reece’s irresistible appeal as possible. But how can she when they’re forced to share a tent? In the sultry heat of summer, Cate will discover just how incredible dreams can be and that sometimes they can also come true.

And don’t forget Kasey Channing (as if you could)shelter from storm

Amy Stevens knows damn well men are more trouble than they’re worth

The two ex-pat yanks she gets roped into taking riding in the high country are exactly that—sexy, arrogant, irresistible trouble. Keeping both the Davis brothers at arm’s length and her chin free from drool is bloody hard work.

When a summer thunderstorm rolls through the high plains and forces them to take shelter in a secluded cattleman’s hut, Cade and Mason are determined to break through the fiery redhead’s prickly facade and show her exactly how good two men can be …

And the lovely Rhian Cahill shut up and kiss me

The city of Sydney isn’t the only thing heating up this summer.

Kyle Barnes has kept a lid on his simmering desire for Jac for years but what’s a man to do when faced with a hot, wet woman wearing only a towel? Take what he wants of course.

As the city around them melts under a summer heat wave these two friends will discover the sizzling temperatures aren’t the only thing boiling over.
